For the past 25 years, RESPEC has provided engineering and field services to meet customers' on-site needs. RESPEC's field services usually are completed by experienced staff members; the average experience of those providing field services exceeds 10 years.
A range of field services is provided by RESPEC. General areas of our expertise include:
RESPEC engineers and technicians have designed, installed, and maintained thousands of instruments in a wide variety of ground conditions to monitor excavation-induced disturbances, in both underground and surface excavations. Depending on our customers’ needs, monitoring may include measurement of absolute or differential ground movement, stress changes, blast effects, hydrological changes or other physical parameters. RESPEC can either locate and specify the proper vendor-supplied instruments or design and manufacture for the instrumentation task. With expertise in data acquisition, data management, and analyses, RESPEC can provide a complete monitoring package to our customers and fulfill most monitoring requirements. RESPEC has designed and conducted programs to measure in situ stress and hydrological properties in drill holes in excess of 1,500 meters (5,000 feet) deep. Our staff is experienced in the various well testing methods as well as drilling program design and supervision. RESPEC personnel can provide geological descriptions of the project site through literature reviews, surface mapping, core logging, and geophysical logs.
RESPEC performed the geotechnical engineering characterization for the Deep Underground Science and Engineering Laboratory (DUSEL) in the former Homestake Mine located in Lead, South Dakota. The DUSEL is planned to be a National Science Foundation- (NSF-) sponsored Major Research Equipment Facility Construction (MREFC). The geotechnical engineering effort included the initial ...
